Americans have learned to become addicted to sugar. This is no surprise because sugar, in one form or another, is added to many foods to make them more sweet and tasty. The key word in the previous sentence is "added". This means that "free" sugars are added to much of our foods today which already contain sugar. The extra added sugars means more calories which can cause weight gain in consumers. In order to cut down on your sugar intake you should gradually incorporate more whole fruit into your diet and avoid fruit juices and soda. The bonus in reducing your sugar intake is a reduced risk of incurring type-2 diabetes.
